Price a new and used transmission and do the math.


Really depends as FOR stated, is the car in otherwise immaculate condition, meaning that the body, exterior and interior is perfect? Look, it's a free car to you.. how's the engine? Arithmetic....


I think the Boss already did the math, maybe that is why they are the Boss?
